Computing Sintegral points on elliptic curves.
Friday 26th November, 121pm, Carslaw 375.
In 1929 C. Siegel proved that there are only finitely many integral
points on an elliptic curve. A few years later, this result was
generalized by K. Mahler to Sintegral points, where
S denotes a finite set of places of a number field
K. In this talk I'll give a brief overview of the
computation of Sintegral points on elliptic curves defined
over the rational numbers by estimating linear forms in complex and
padic elliptic logarithms.
